I understand the frustration. Worst thing I’ve experience so far was a record breaking day for heat here in Texas. Customer requested a quote for the sidewalk, driveway, and bricks in the front and backyard to be cleaned. I showed up and what usually would have been a 3 hour job turned into a 5 hour job. I sent the invoice and he replied with “job was not finished properly” because he wanted his “pavers” cleaned but he never told me, nor did he ever tell me to clean the pavers. I felt he used that excuse to get out of paying me. I made multiple attempts to contact him and advised I’d come back out and clean the pavers for free but he’d have to pay the invoice first. He then “cancelled” and “closed” the job on TT that I already completed and had marked myself “hired” for. This prevented me from reporting him or pulling up the details of the job request or further contacting him. He then gave me a 3 star review and I never heard from him nor did I ever hear back from TT. Frustrated to say the least.

I understand your pain. What use to be competition between about 4-5 of us, now has almost tripled. What’s worse is that I’m getting undercut by almost 200% because I know that some of the guys quoting incredibly low have been high school kids with a pressure washer in the back of their truck bidding on commercial sites. I’ve had to go out and correct some of their work, hince why I kind of know what’s going on. It’s frustrating but keep yalls heads up.
